Kylian Mbappe has embarked on a spectacular rant at current club Paris Saint-Germain after he was left unimpressed by using him as their poster boy for season tickets ahead of next summer’s new campaign.
The French forward displayed his vehement anger towards his employers after using an image of himself to get fans onboard with a season-ticket campaign for next season, with the club duly obliging and removing him from the advert in a matter of hours. This was due to the club failing to inform the world superstar that they would use him in the advert – which went against the image rights that the forward has.
There has been much speculation around Mbappe’s future. His contract expires at the end of next season, and with PSG crashing out of the Champions League early thanks to a loss to Bayern Munich, it appears it will be another relatively unsuccessful season for Les Parisiens on the whole.
Posting on his Instagram on Thursday, Mbappe said: “I don’t agree with what they have done. That’s why I fight for individual image rights. PSG is a great club and a great family, but of course it is not Kylian Saint-Germain.”
Add Lionel Messi’s uncertain future to the mix, and it appears the French champions could well be in freefall ahead of the start of next campaign, given Neymar’s injury which has ruled him out until the end of the season.
